I would return the coralife skimmer for a refund and get something quality.
I would also make my own water instead of purchasing water from the lfs. It's cheaper, you know exactly what's in it, and it's always readily available...even in an emergency in the middle of the night.
What is the salinity of that water?

Just took measurements on the tank, and it is only 55 Gallons appologies. That explains as to why it didnt take much water to get it 75% replaced. To answer your question the salinity level is at 1.024. With the findings of the tank being 55 Gallons, will the light I have currently suffice for the anenome's?

Could you post pics of your anemone? ASAP Preferably showing their mouth... And the one problem was adding the live rock after the fish. Sorry not trying to make you feel bad and repeating it.

I ask about the anemone because the water gets cloudy when one dies. And if you dot get it out In time it will fall apart and finish killing off the rest of your tank
